I work as a Senior Research Engineer at Eduworks Corporation, a small research and development firm in Corvallis, Oregon. My interests include speech recognition, speaker verification, speech synthesis, natural language processing, and machine learning. I completed a PhD in Electrical Engineering at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. My research focused on speaker recognition and its application in forensic voice comparison. I previously held research appointments at the Acoustics Research Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. My doctoral dissertation Implementation of forensic voice comparison within the new paradigm for the evaluation of forensic evidence has been described as "a remarkable and significant step forward in the field ... [that] represents one of the strongest research advancements in this domain to date."
